Clubs & Activities


Christ the King encourages all of its students to get involved in extra curricular activities, which help develop time management skills and nourish and develop talents throughout their years here with us. We offer an array of different clubs and activities for students to participate in. Below you will find information on these activities and the contact information for each:

The Drama Club is an after school activity offered to children in 5th Grade-8th Grade. In Drama Club, students rehearse and preform a scripted play. Children learn the basics of stagecraft, self-discipline and the importance of hard work and creativity while developing self-confidence along the way.

Every year, Christ the King’s Drama Club puts on a musical or play. Recent productions include: Willy Wonka Jr.Disney’s Aladdin Jr.Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr., Disney’s Peter Pan Jr., Disney’s Cinderella, etc.

For more information on Drama Club, please contact Mrs. Nemeth.

Through Student Government, the Christ the King student body elects their own slate of officers which include one president, one vice president, one secretary, and one treasurer. These officers are in charge of committees that students can participate in to help improve the school or to create events such as school dances, pep rallies, and fundraisers.

Committees meet periodically throughout the week during middle school lunch to fulfill whatever jobs that have been assigned to them by their elected representatives.

For more information on Student Government, please contact Mrs. Ramesh.

School Liturgical Choir is open to students in grades 4-8. Choir meets weekly in the choir loft and sings for All School Mass and other events. Singers learn through their favorite songs and games how to engage more fully in the Mass, work on important musical skills like reading music and singing expressively, and reinforce other areas like reading comprehension and team building.
 
Cantors for All School Mass are selected by audition or invitation and receive extra training and practice time during the week. This leadership role is a privilege for students who read and sing music confidently and are ready for more responsibility.
 
Contact the Director of Music & Liturgy Jessica Roberts for more information!

Girls on the Run (GOTR) inspires girls in grades 3-5 to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Over a period of 10 weeks, girls participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the GOTR curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique. Physical activity is woven into our program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health.  At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5k event. GOTR meets during the spring. For more information, visit the Girls on the Run website here or contact Kathleen Fulcher or Teresa Stack.

Both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts programs achieve the BSA’s objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.

Cub Scouts for boys in first grade through fifth grade meet as a Pack once a month at Christ the King , usually on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30pm. They also meet as a Den (depends on the grade level) once or twice a month depending on the requirements they are working on.  Den meetings are scheduled based on what works best for the Dens.

As Cub Scouts the boys will do many fun activities as well as learning many lessons. They will have the opportunity to go camping, hiking, learn to tie knots, go on outings such as the police department, fire department. There is also 2 derbies where the boys will get to make a pinewood car and a space rocket to race. Just to mention a few.

Boy Scouts are for boys who have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, but not yet 18 years old. The Troop meets on Mondays at 7:00pm at Christ the King in the basement.
As Boy Scouts they will on many more adventures such as camping, canoeing, hiking, sleeping on a submarine, and rock wall climbing to name a few. The Boy Scouts will learn valuable lessons through community service in many ways. Merit Badges give the boys opportunities to learn about many different aspects of life- such as life saving skills, personal fitness and learning about citizenship to name a few. Some of these Merit badges can develop hobbies that will last through their adult life, or can spark an interest into a career.

Both groups usually have regular meeting throughout the school year. With some activities (like summer camp) over the summer.
